I make these up as I go along, so the outcome is not always what I might have wished for, but these are a few of my favorites. I made them in the last few days. They are crocheted all in one piece rather than sewn together.

This is really neat! I love the different shapes you achieved. Cheesy Seems like a fun way to use up some of those beautiful variegated yarns I can never find a proper use for.

I have some idea in mind as to how I want the shapes to turn out, but there are unpredictable effects that come up in the shapes, especially whey I add the arms and legs, and I'm not willing to unravel, so I let them sort of evolve. Smiley It was a challenge to make sure the legs pointed downward (on the middle one) when they are so far apart. (Btw, these are made with cotton thread, so they are quite small.)

This is really impressive! There's no way I could just start crocheting and end up with something so clean looking. I wish I had the confidence to try something like this.

AugustBell, if you wish you could try it, then try it! It's just a matter of deciding when to increase and when to decrease, and to do it gradually enough to avoid puckering. Using cotton thread rather than yarn is more time consuming, but because each stitch is so small (and also because it's stiffer), it's much more forgiving when you increase or decrease too much, and you can correct on the next round if you're overdone it. Thanks for your comment!
